Easy Engineering: Tell us about your range of products/solutions

Among the many challenges manufacturers face, there are 3 roadblocks Azumuta helps to overcome: skills gap, increased product complexity due to mass customization, and increasingly tight regulatory & quality requirements.

While ‘Industry 4.0’ is a buzzword, the fact is many operators still use pen and paper and are being burdened with excessive paperwork. In this scenario, some digitalization tools overlook the human element. Azumuta offers an operator-centric solution to solve digitalization challenges. Our main products revolve around this premise and are compressed into our 4 modules:

  • Digital Work Instructions: Products are becoming more sophisticated due to mass customization demands. Continuous product upgrades and re-designs are a must. We provide easily customizable work instructions while giving shop floor workers paperless, multimedia-supported, interactive work instructions.
  • Quality Management: In some industries, manufacturers must be able to trace all records related to a production batch. This module offers unparalleled product traceability, where users can keep track of past and ongoing production data – granting exceptional quality control to fulfill quality standards.
  • Audits & Digital Checklists:  There’s no better way to ensure regulatory compliance than regular audits. This module has every feature auditors need for planning, executing, and reporting the results of any audit.
  • Skill Matrix & Training:  This module allows to detect and close skill gaps. Keep track of employees’ skills & training history, organize training programs, and visualize their skill levels with our skill matrix.

E.E: Which are the most futuristic products/solutions from your portfolio?

Azumuta stands out from the rest thanks to its unrivaled integration. All of our modules can be used individually or combined. Our clients can select which functionalities they need and change their preferences anytime – giving exceptional flexibility. The idea of managing all shop floor operations from a single platform is, for us, the future.  

Most of our competitors only focus on 1 module. Thus, clients must subscribe to multiple providers – increasing their operational cost and complexity.

E.E: What are clients seeking when buying products/solutions from your range?

  • Off-the-shelf products: Our clients are looking for products they can deploy immediately and adjust to their industry and specific operations.
  • Ease of adoption: Our clients prioritize products that are easy to adapt to. Our user-friendly interface and drag-and-drop functionality minimize the time needed to train employees.
  • Scalable deployment: Our clients can easily scale their use of our products based on their operational needs.
  • Open ecosystem: In this era of interconnectivity, our clients prefer products with wide integration possibilities with other software and hardware.
  • Information-rich knowledge hub: Which serves as a guide in using our products, to keep our clients informed of the latest product updates, and help them stay up to speed with the latest industry trends.
  • Affordability: Our clients seek affordable products with flexible pricing plans – where they’ll pay only for the products they need.

E.E: Which aspects should clients focus on when buying a product/solution?

When buying a product, it’s important to focus on your specific needs and challenges. Here are the most important aspects:

  • The features that your organization needs.
  • Your organization’s budget.
  • Integrations with existing systems (and whether there’s any vendor lock-in).
  • Customization possibilities.
  • Customer support reliability.

E.E: How do your new products/services differ from others on the market?

Azumuta is a software tool that helps manufacturers eliminate paperwork and improve efficiency. It’s different from other software tools on the market because:

All-in-one: Azumuta offers 4 modules with countless features covering all your manufacturing needs. Therefore, you don’t need to subscribe to multiple software tools to manage your factory operations.

User-friendly: Azumuta has a simple and intuitive interface that makes it easy to use, even for non-technical users.

Customizable: Azumuta can be customized to fit your factory’s needs. Users can request any additional feature that they need, allowing them to reach any goal.

Cost-effective: Azumuta is a cloud-based software, meaning you don’t need to install any software on your own servers. This will cut your hardware upkeep costs.

E.E: Tell us about research and development in your company

Azumuta’s outlook on product research & development is based on our spirit of continuous innovation to solve our clients’ problems. Our company started when I was invited to digitalize the work instructions of a manufacturing company.

This experience reflects our client-centered R&D approach. We collaborate closely with our clients, who are leading manufacturers in their fields. We listen to their concerns and develop solutions to address them. This approach means our solutions are always on point and fulfill our clients’ needs, regardless of the industry.

E.E: Tell us something about sustainability and efficiency in the future

The key lies in 2 technologies: generative AI and the internet-of-things (IoT). Generative AI expands our know-how when planning and executing a task – helping us to reach our sustainability and efficiency goals.

Meanwhile, IoT integrations give unprecedented data-sharing capabilities between devices. Managers can easily monitor production efficiency-related metrics, such as FTR RateThroughput TimeNet Production Output, and many other relevant metrics. 

E.E: What industries do you think will grow in 2024?

We expect advanced manufacturing to steal the spotlight in 2024 – thanks to the increasingly common presence of advanced production machinery on the shop floor, such as 3D printers, robotics, and automated sensors.

This industry produces goods critical for our modern society, including electronics and motor vehicles. These products will always have a demand – ensuring their stable growth in the future.

Besides its typically high ESG standards, this industry is known to create countless lucrative job opportunities. Thus, not only is it financially rewarding for stakeholders, but it contributes positively to society as well.

E.E: What products/solutions do you provide for these industries?

Products made in this industry are incredibly complex to make. They consist of numerous components, and assembling them requires pinpoint precision. Imagine products like a lithography machine or a vehicle’s powertrain.

Azumuta has already proven its usefulness among manufacturers in this industry.  For instance, our Quality Management module allows users to trace every product’s data and whereabouts – down to each component – making it easy to keep track of everything.
